10:55-11:35 (40m) Data Science
A taste of random decision forests on Apache Spark
Sean Owen (Cloudera)
Apache Spark has a lot to like for the data scientist: natively distributed, REPL, Scala and Python APIs, and a machine learning library, MLlib. Spark 1.2 includes an implementation of random decision forests, an important classifier/regressor algorithm. This talk will introduce Spark, Scala, and random decision forests, and demonstrate the process of analyzing a real-world data set with them.
11:45-12:25 (40m) Data Science
Scalable machine learning
Mikio Braun (Zalando SE)
While the data management side of Big Data has seen tremendous progress in the past few years, bringing technologies like Hadoop or Spark together with advanced machine learning and data analysis methods is still a major challenge. In this talk, I will discuss recent advances, approaches, and patterns which are used to build truly scalable machine learning solutions.
13:45-14:05 (20m) Data Science

14:35-14:55 (20m) Data Science
Poor man's parallel pipelines
Jeroen Janssens (Data Science Workshops)
Hadoop, Storm, and Spark are fantastic frameworks for processing massive amounts of data in parallel. Every now and then, there is a one-off data science task that could really use some speeding up. For those kinds of tasks, it's probably not worthwhile to set up large frameworks. This presentation demonstrates GNU Parallel, which allows you to easily parallelize and distribute such tasks.
14:55-15:15 (20m) Data Science
Users love Spark. Does Spark love (multiple) users?
Richard Shaw (MapR)
Apache Spark is a powerful, unified data processing engine offering a number of APIs, from batch/SQL over streaming to manipulations over graphs. The core architecture of Spark has not necessarily been designed with a multi-user environment in mind. We will review existing and emerging approaches how to use Spark in multi-user environments, such as the Tachyon project.
16:15-16:55 (40m) Data Science
Fast > Perfect: Practical approximation examples for mobile app analytics using Spark Streaming
Kevin Schmidt (Mind Candy Ltd), Luis Angel Vicente Sanchez (Mind Candy Ltd.)
Mobile gaming is a fast-moving field and needs metrics like daily active users or revenue in real-time to be able to fine-tune quickly. Approximation is needed to count those metrics, as the data volume would be too large to process exactly in real-time. We will demonstrate how to use Spark Streaming and probabilistic data structures to achieve a low error rate, even for many millions of users.
17:05-17:45 (40m) Data Science
Untangling influence and desire: Visual analysis of massive graph data

11:45-12:25 (40m) Hadoop Platform
Information architecture for Apache Hadoop
Mark Samson (Cloudera)
The Hadoop ecosystem makes it possible to build an enterprise data hub capable of storing and analysing a wide variety of data. However, a platform with such broad capability triggers a question: how to organise the myriad data sets in a way that allows users to explore and access the data they need? This session will propose an information architecture for Hadoop that enables this.
13:45-14:25 (40m) Hadoop Platform
The Future of Apache Hadoop Security
Joey Echeverria (Rocana)
As the volume of data and number of applications moving to Apache Hadoop has increased, so has the need to secure that data and those applications. In this presentation, we'll take a brief look at where Hadoop security is today and then peer into the future.
14:35-15:15 (40m) Hadoop Platform
Transparent encryption in HDFS
Charles Lamb (Cloudera), Andrew Wang (Cloudera)
Encryption is a requirement for many business sectors dealing with confidential information. To meet these requirements, transparent, end-to-end encryption was added to HDFS. This protects data while it is in-flight and at-rest, and can be used compatibly with existing Hadoop apps. We will cover the design and implementation of transparent encryption in HDFS, as well as performance results.
16:15-16:55 (40m) Hadoop Platform
Adding insert, update, and delete to Hive
Alan Gates (Hortonworks)
Starting in Hive 0.14, insert values, update, and delete have been added to Hive SQL. In addition, ACID compliant transactions have been added so users get a consistent view of data while reading and writing. This talk will cover the intended use cases, architecture, and performance of insert, update, and delete in Hive.
17:05-17:45 (40m) Tools & Technology
Big Data and IoT solutions in minutes
Maarten Ectors (Canonical)
What if Big Data technologies would be like Lego blocks that can be clicked together to create complete solutions. You could add continuous deployment, e.g. Pig or Storm topologies. Integrate SSO. You can add sentiment analysis or real-time dashboards. You can integrate any data source. All Open Source. We are ready to demo this so Big Data solutions in minutes is reality not marketing.

Sex, drugs and data: Using web data to add £3bn to the UK economy
Andrew Fogg (import • io )
How much does prostitution contribute to the UK economy? According to the UK’s Office of National Statistics the answer is £5bn, or 0.4% of GDP. But how did they calculate that number? With 10-year-old survey data and lots of assumptions, that's how. In this talk Andrew Fogg shows how he was able to add £3bn to the UK economy using some statistical sleuthing and modern web data techniques.
10:55-11:35 (40m) Privacy, Law, & Ethics
Algorithm ethics: The inevitable subjective judgments in analytics
Majken Sander (TimeXtender), Joerg Blumtritt (Datarella)
Algorithms define the meaning we get from data. Arbitrary decisions are regularly built into our analytics by chosen method, setting parameters, or dealing with missing values. These value judgments are not present in the privacy discussion or business point of view. However, they may be much more important than the more obvious data collection or secure storage.
11:45-12:25 (40m) Privacy, Law, & Ethics
